I've not read any of his books. But there is one that is on my wish list at Paperback Swap by him called Books: A Memoir

McMurtry owns a huge used book store in Texas. And people come from all over to buy books there. I would love to visit his store one day.

His son, James McMurtry, is a great musician too.

Yella, I love both Larry McMurtry and Elmore Leonard. I liked Lonesome Dove (of course) but his westerns aren't my favorite--just a matter of choice, not that I think they aren't as good as his other books. I read All My Friends are Going to be Strangers as a kid and I was hooked. I think the first Elmore Leonard I read was 52 Pickup.

I loved the movie LONESOME DOVE.

And I just checked out a new Elmore Leonard, RAYLAN. Haven't started reading it, though.

Yeller, I really like Larry McMurtry and have read a lot of his books. Westerns are my favorite genre.

However, Louis L'Amour is my favorite, and I have read everything he's ever written (many of them many times!) except the one his daughter finished posthumously.

I am aware of the prequel: Comanche Moon.

Is there a movie that follows LONESOME DOVE?

There is also a movie called Return to Lonesome Dove, but it was
Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana

Plot Summary for
"Return to Lonesome Dove" (1993)

'Captain' Call has just buried Gus at Lonesome Dove and plans to head back to his ranch in Montana. Looking at a herd of wild Mustangs, he decides to drive them north with the help of Isom and Gideon Walker. Gideon hires Agostina Vega and Mexican Cowboys to run the Mustangs. Call leaves the drive for Nebraska and runs into Cherokee Jack and a group of Indians, which almost costs him his life. In Montana, Newt and Jasper get into a shoot out in the local bar and wind up in jail. The odds of them surviving the lynch mob are slim until Dunnegan has them freed. Newt had rescued his wife, Ferris, from a band of cattle rustlers and Dunnegan was thankful. However, Newt and Jasper will have to work for Dunnegan to keep their freedom. Newt has mixed emotions about working for Dunnegan who helps him in any way, because he also has respect for Call - who may or may not be his true father. Dunnegan has big plans for his cattle and the future. Those plans do not include those who do not throw in with him and the Hat Creek Cattle Company is not interested in Dunnegan.
